How’s It Going?

Well, we’re halfway through month one of the new year.

Are you half way to your month one goals?

If not, why not?


Do you even have month one goals?

If not, why not?


These are the questions I ask myself.

I’m only asking in case they’ll help you too.


Step one to accomplishing anything is set the goal, but step two is to make a plan.

Step three is to create clearly measurable milestones along the way to see how you are doing.

Then there’s nothing left to it but to do it!


With new martial arts students, we say:  “the first step to becoming a blackbelt is you have to say it and see it.”

Then you have to make it a goal by giving it a date; you have to put it in writing.

Then you have to train like a Blakcbelt!

That means giving your very, very best.

And then you have to never quit.


That’s how a white belt becomes a Blackbelt.

And how anyone can win at anything.


You got this!
